West Ardsley Community Online!

Today, the West Ardsley Action Group (WAAG!) have taken the bold step of purchasing a domain name for the village of West Ardsley and creating the West Ardsley community website.

We would like these pages to be about our community, for the community, giving you all the information and more at your fingertips. In the coming weeks we will be sharing news, campaigns, recommendations and things to do in our village.

Recently, some of the community have been fighting plans for a housing development in one of our green spaces. The message we have heard time and time again from this is how it feels like everyone is coming together and how it is fantastic to share in a like-minded community once again.

We donโ€™t want this to come to an end, hence our mission to launch WestArdsley.co.uk

WAAG have also been working hard with residents to look at other issues affecting us all – such as bins and yes, dog poo (!), alongside other issues such as poor parking, etc.

WAAG will be featuring additional content to WestArdsley.co.uk on a regular basis in the coming months, so please do visit us often!

Reservoir Litter Picking!

On the 25th February 2018, a group of volunteers, spurred on by a local resident, marched to Ardsley Reservoir to demonstrate against the currently planned 299 housing development in the West Ardsley area. During the event, over 100 more objection letters were signed.

Afterwards the group helped to pick up litter around Ardsley Reservoir! The skip, kindly provided by Leeds City Council was soon filled to the brim with rubbish (amongst normal rubbish items placed in the skip, tyres, children’s toys and animal bones were found) – a great success!
